has signed an agreement with Zip Aviation for the sale of a Bell 407GX to be used for corporate transportation, charters, tours, transfers and aerial surveys. The aircraft will be equipped with a Quiet Cruise kit for reduced noise levels in cruise flight. The 407GX Quiet Cruise kit communicates with the engine’s FADEC to adjust the rotor speed, significantly decreasing external noise in cruise flight, resulting in a reduction of decibels that will reach the community below.
Zip Aviation offers a wide range of helicopter services for New York City and surrounding areas including, tours, charters, VIP transport, location scouting, aerial photography, airport connections and more. The helicopter will join the company’s current fleet of Bell 407s and Bell 206B Jet Rangers operating charters and tour missions.
Bell has also announced that the company will be showcasing the Bell 505 Jet Ranger X in parapublic configuration at the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) in Orlando, Fla. from Oct. 25-28.
